Using Video Cameras to Assess the Helmet Use Rate of Myanmar Motorcycle Riders

The use of motorcycle helmets is critical to decrease crash injury severity, it is therefore crucial to have detailed data on helmet use in a country. Low cost video cameras were used to film traffic at eight observation sites to update data on motorcycle helmet use throughout Myanmar. Helmet use varied depending on the observation site, time of day, position on the motorcycle, and between urban and rural sites. The use of mobile video cameras proved to be a versatile and flexible method to collect helmet use data, although coding of the recorded videos was time consuming.
